Deployment charge

I have had success so far with my tiny bag/masking tape deployment "caps" for dual deploy rockets. But I have been seeing some rocketeers using other methods. What have people been using? I found this: https://macperformancerocketry.com/collections/aluminum-deployment-charge-canisters/prod...

Re: Vinyl Decals

I wanted seem decals for my new AMRAAM4 - Australian Rocketry to the rescue. Not sure what I wanted but wanted something special. Found an image and AusRock went to work. The result was awesome! See the dragon scale detail! The rocket of course is called Dragon Fire. Thank you to Blake at Australian...

Re: Orion Launch Abort System (LAS) - (picture heavy).

Looking forward to this one!!

Question: will the thrust from the motors diverge enough to damage the lower body?
Could you protect it with some AL foil or similar?

Pulsejets

Some guys at work, knowing I was growing into a rocket nerd, asked if I knew of the propulsion system for V2.

A Pulsejet.

No I did not.
and they sent me a link of some (Crazy!) guys experimenting.

Perhaps someone will make one for the next Thunda!

Re: L2 Exam

Great feedback thank you. yes did miss that reference to Commercial Launch, clause D. And that is the point. no where in the AMR High Power Rocketry Safety Code does it refer to Commercial Launch. At a text search for that term does not reveal it. The AMRS Safe Launch Practices is a condensed versio...

Re: See Through Model Rocket Engine Burning

Dodgy Brothers those guys! Did you see the car drive past in the lane way behind the tripod? Perhaps they were not able to read the NFPA 1122 to maintain safe distances for standard and experimental rocket motors (cut in half is experimental yes?) Perhaps just as interesting is the transparent hybri...

Re: The Magic Pre-Launch Check List

Happy to help!

I would be concerned that many L3 and above have forgotten more than I know!

But I am sure there are a number of checklists out there that your various contacts could contribute as starting material.
With guidance, I am happy to bring something to you for consideration.
